Had my followup this morning. Mixed bag of news. I guess, again, I need to see the big picture, but so many little things bother me. So, good news first:
- BP is normal, but has been for some time now, so that med is working VERY well. (I know it’s not me being more calm, that is never going to happen. lol)
well, I guess that is it for good news, at least in my mind. So, the bad:
- Weight, exactly the same as 3 months ago. I was almost certain I had lost something, but I guess not. Kinda pissed off about this, as for example, yesterday, at my nephew’s party, I DID NOT have cake, or any sweets, stuck to veggie tray, yes some dips too, and water. I didn’t even drink! And this is what happens?
- My sugar has been running higher again, which bothers me to no end. so now I will wait impatiently for the A1C to come back, to see if the overall number is better. I have been trying to be so good on this, I guess it’s time to make more changes. Drastic ones this time.
So, the plan is this. Today, I am going to get new laces for my sneakers, and 4 new pairs of sweat pants. I have a gym in my apartment complex, and I will hit that damn treadmill till it screams for mercy. Ok, it cant talk, so, I will be doing no less then 45 mins A DAY, no exceptions, EVERY day. On days I have tarp duty for the colorguard, I will give myself an exception, come see a Cadet Shen show you’ll understand. lol
Food intake: cut back ALL alcohol to no more then once a week, and even then cut down on those nights too. For the most part, I was good over the holidays, but, I will cut it down even more. Lunches, switching to a wrap, or 6″ sub at most, and will find alternative food to bring in. Breakfast, switching to ONE Kind bar or less. Snacks will be carrots, celery, you get the idea.
I know I need to keep looking at the averages from last 3 months on my sugar levels, but as they creep back up, whatever the reason was, I am doubling-down my efforts. I REFUSE to let this shit beat me.
